Editorial Focus

Split Rock Review is a not-for-profit publication run by volunteers that love literature, art, and the wilderness. Their mission is to publish the finest literature and art that explore place, environment, and the relationship between humans and the natural world. They feature poetry, creative nonfiction, ecofiction, hybrids, comics / graphic literature, art, book reviews, and interviews. Online journal issues are published biannually. They also nominate contributors’ work for most major awards and anthologies.

Tips From the Editor

We only accept submissions via Submittable. We do not accept previously published works; however, simultaneous submissions are fine. We strongly encourage you to read past issues to get a better sense of the work we publish.
